The Syrian Government has warned British MPs to avoid "reckless action" as they prepare to debate the suspected chemical attack in Damascus. The Speaker of the Syrian Parliament wrote to Commons Speaker John Bercow to make clear the consequences of a military strike. His intervention came after David Cameron was forced to drop plans for early intervention after Labour made clear its opposition. The Government was further angered on Thursday morning when the Opposition vowed to push ahead with its own amendment, claiming it sets out a better path. Tensions in Westminster mounted as it emerged six RAF Typhoon jets have been sent to Cyprus as a "prudent and precautionary measure."
